Frequently Asked Questions

A zine is a small, independently published art booklet.  Zines typically contain illustrations, poetry, cartoons or short stories.  Zines do not have any sort of corporate backing, they are very rugged, individualized, and much more charismatic than larger, more popular magazines whose content is often dictated by their advertisers.

The Zine-O-Matic concept is simple. It's a zine subscription service where we send you cool zines every month in the mail. Signing up is easy, just let us know how many you want to receive every month and where to send them. Shipments are sent out on the 1st of every month, and your account is renewed on the 11th of every month. You can cancel your subscription at any time so don't worry.

How many zines do you want a month? Where should we send them? You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

The world's foremost zine curators come together once a month in the underground zinebunker. Its kind of like League of Extraordinary Gentleman except we're better dressed and have worse acne. We are constantly scouring hip bookstores for diamonds amongst the angsty teen drama zines. Trust us there are a lot of weaksauce zines, but we filter those out using a complex system of centrifuges and riffle tables. Every month it hurts us to ship out our treasures to you people, but we do it because it is our duty.

We're always looking for great zines. Seriously like constantly looking. All the time. Endlessly looking for zines. Tirelessly.  Just send us an email at zineomatic@gmail.com and we'll talk turkey.

For sure. Zine-O-Matic  is a really rad gift because it comes every month and your niece is like "oh yeah this is from Uncle Jerry. My birthday was last month but there's still zines coming.  This is awesome." Plus giving the gift of zines makes you seem like you're "hip" even if you're not.

Pricing depends on how big a bag-o-zine you want. Our prices range from 13.99 for 3 zines a month to 22.99 for 5 zines a month (shipping not included).  Zines are shipped on the 1st of the month,  on the 11th of every month if you're still subscribed we renew your subscription for the next month's shipment. If you want to cancel you can log in and cancel, or just email us and we'll take you off the list.

Totally! Listen we're not monsters. If you decide you suddenly hate zines just log into your account and cancel. It's really easy. You can also just shoot us an email at zineomatic@gmail.com and we'll cancel your subscription for you.

We get it, you're big zinester on campus and you're afraid of getting duplicate zines in the mail. Not to worry, just shoot us an email and we'll include an extra zine in your next shipment.
